This is the best wheel cleaner i have seen yet. MY wheels are polished billet aluminum. After my car had been in the shop for 6 months the wheels were in very bad shape. There were many deep stains that i couldnt even get out with scotch brite cloth. I picked up some BLUE MAGIC for my console, because it looked like a decent cleaner. It turned out to be some of the best polish i have ever used(i have also used neverdul, which is quite good). I tried it on the wheels and it was "Magic". The wheels in the first pic have been washed twice after a coat of never dul.

The tires have had it. There is a whole bunch of road construction goin on. The roads are so bad it has knocked the front end out of alignment twice. I didnt pick up on it quick enough and with the 180 treadwear that was not good. o well. It happens like that.

400 do you wax them after you clean them? Seems like that would seal them up a little. They do look good!:bang

No i do not wax them. The blue magic is wax in itself. It leaves a lair of sylicon to prevent dirt from sticking. so the next wash the dirt just comes off and there is not much need for polishing them again. I used a ton of that this weekend in the car show. Started cleaning at like 12 that friday nite and stayed up until 2 and then got up at like 9:30. Made the whole family get out there and polish stuff becuase it had to be registered in at 12 sat. Not much time to detail, but it turned out ok.
